Teaching from the Deep
Deepwater Archaeology, from its historical potential to technical advancements, provides STEM education with an array of impressive tools to engage students in holistic or transdisciplinary learning. Archaeologists need to initiate these conversations, engage students and teachers at the moment of discovery and encourage the larger collective in problem-solving. Today with virtual classroom technology, and national and international programs such as Project Lead the Way, Sea Perch, and Mate, the world of deep water exploration already has active and engaged audiences. As today’s students enter the workforce they will be called upon to make decisions that either endanger or protect our natural and cultural resources. Providing rigorous and relevant opportunities for student engagement in the real world, science of Deepwater Archaeology today will insure a generation capable of engaging in appropriate conversations about stewardship in the future.
